Nancy Pelosi admitted on national tv in her weekly press conference her ignorance back in November. I think this should be an impeachable offense. See what happens when someone has been in the congress for over 25 years. I would have thought they would be the experts seeing how they are representing the people.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) confused the 14th and 11th Amendments when suggesting the president could bypass Congress and unilaterally raise the debt ceiling, saying, “Whatever it is, I’m with the constitution.” During her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill on Thursday, Pelosi was asked about the need for two separate deals in Congress to both raise the approaching debt ceiling and address the expiration of the Bush era tax cuts. “I would hope not,” Pelosi said. “I would hope that by now—well, me, I’m with the 11th Amendment, so.” “Is it the 11th Amendment?” she asked. “That—14th is it?” “Whatever it is, I’m with the Constitution of the United States,” said the Minority Leader.
All of congress should be called up to recite the Constitution. The caveat is how do we actually make them truly understand they work for us and the constitution is the Holy Grail they should be living by!
